Easter Egg Hunt – Cancellation Message from the Chairman

Important Announcement – Cwmdonkin Park Easter Egg Hunt cancelled

We have been considering carefully whether to proceed with the proposed Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for Good Friday (10 April) – taking account of the Government’s  advice concerning Corona virus (Covid 19).  That advice is to avoid unnecessary contact with  other people and, specifically,  to steer clear of  large gatherings.   Bearing in mind that the Easter Egg Hunt has attracted hundreds of children (and their parents/carers) in previous years,  we have concluded that it would be irresponsible to proceed.  The event is therefore CANCELLED for the current year.

We apologise to everyone who was looking forward to the event, but the cancellation decision is unfortunately inevitable in order to protect visitors to the park. Other Friends of Cwmdonkin Park  events,  which are currently in the planning stage, will be reviewed over the next few weeks.

Park Lives Event Apology

Unfortunately, the ‘Park Lives at Cwmdonkin Park’ event scheduled for Thursday 25 of April, to be run by Park Lives, was cancelled at short notice because of inclement weather. The Friends of Cwmdonkin Park had no part in organising this, but would nevertheless wish to say how sorry we are for anyone who turned up and was disappointed.
